About This Blog -- An update!
Liz: Since 2006, Celebritology has delivered a carefully curated daily mix of the day's top celebrity news, gossip and must-see photos and videos. But, like any good news product, we've grown and changed over the years. Now that we've made it through puberty (because four years equals puberty in blog years) it's time to expand our focus and take a wider look at the world of entertainment.
Celebritology will continue to bring you breaking celebrity news (Lindsay Lohan's accelerated aging), opinion (Did Tiger go too far?) and analysis (which celeb iPhone app should you download?). But starting today, the revamped Celebritology -- dubbed Celebritology 2.0 -- will add a healthy dose of posts about pop culture, covering everything from movie blockbusters to offbeat DVDs, extreme fandom to the latest geek-tastic viral video.
How? I will still be here paying attention to the latest Spencer and Heidi news so you don't have to. But we're adding a new co-blogger: Jen Chaney, washingtonpost.com's movie maven. Many of you may recognize her as my longtime "Lost" analysis collaborator, and a frequent guest contributor to this blog. (See our collaborative coverage of Comic-Con 2008, or Jen's more recent post about teen-movie couples that really deserve to be together.) But instead of staying over in the spare room, Jen can now call the blog home.
Jen: Thanks, Liz. I've already started leaving my socks on the floor and neglecting to replace the cap on the Celebritology 2.0 toothpaste. (And yes, it's filled with even more minty freshness.)
For those of you who don't know me, I've been at the Post for 9 1/2 years, overseeing movie content on the Web, reviewing DVDs, writing about everything from Duran Duran to Team CoCo and, occasionally, making a fool of myself while playing movie trivia games with Bradley Cooper.
Each day I'll contribute entertainment news to our morning round-up, and weigh in with additional nuggets and observations from the show-biz stratosphere. To give you a brief sense of the pop-cultural flavors that appeal to these taste buds, my obsessions include Oscar season, old-school MTV music videos, John Hughes movies and pretty much any quote ever uttered by this guy. Of course, there's more to me than just those things. For example, I also hate "Love, Actually" (but not as much as "Valentine's Day").
I am really excited to be here every day, with Liz and all of you as we collectively attempt to make sense of "Hot Tub Time Machine" and those random Cisco commercials that feature Ellen Page. Most of all, I look forward to getting to know all of you -- and your pop cultural quirks -- even better.
Liz: Net result? More bang for your click -- expect more posts each day -- and our commenter community (one of the blog's biggest assets) will have more to talk about.
So join me in giving Jen a warm welcome to the Celebritology community.
